Tidal Wave to Gramma

15 Mar

Trying out Skype and my parents’ new faster internet, the boys and I decided to show off how many sunflowers and marigolds had sprouted in the mini-garden Mom helped them start during their recent visit.  As I tipped the starter tray of seedlings toward the webcam about a cup of water spilled out, and while it spared my computer, a devise who’s had it’s fair share of liquid collisions, my copies of Jane Eyre and Moby-Dick emerged soggily from the deluge.

I think The Whale should be just fine, but I’m worried about Jane.  I don’t think she’s ever even been to the shore.

    Methinks it would behoove thee henceforth, to hold thy tray uprightly, lest peradventure, another ignominious misfortune should befall thee!

    In other words — “What a klutz!”

    (It takes one to know one:)

    Seriously, the watermark on MD is rather striking. Posterity will assume you read it by the seashore. Glad your computer is OK.

    I have yet another copy of The Whale should Ahab demand he be read on non-wrinkled pages.
